line. this is a complex of thunderstorms. i have pittsburgh radar tuned in. notice this bow in here, like a bow from a bow and arrow. that is characteristic of high wind. we had almost 100 reports of high wind from this storm coming through ohio, pennsylvania, a lot of trees down, roofs that have been blown off. the most intense right now, question number one, how much will survive as it comes across the mountains, as it comes across i-81. i think it will do a good job. we will get a weather watch soon. severe thunderstorm watch will probably be issued. we are seeing spinners indicating that there is circulation in these thunderstorms. occasionally ahead of the lines you can get spin ups and you have to worry about that, too. could be tornadoes in places. we will get you in tighter
here. it's about to cross over cumberland an kaiser. you can see how intense this is. we are worried about the amount of lightning. extreme here in these. heavy rain as we thing across. there is a risk for severe weather and it extends along that line, across interstate 70, i-95 and through the mid- atlantic. the question is, how much will these storms be able to hold in intensity as they come on through and cross over the mountains and later on this evening. i suspect by about 8:00, 9:00 we will see the storms come through, at least western sections. a threat tomorrow afternoon for severe thunderstorms as we will heat up and have scattered thunderstorms late tomorrow afternoon as well. 91 in the city. high of 93, 94. 91
look what happens when we add in the heat index. dew point in the middle 70s, feels like 102 in town. 114 in fredricksburg. tomorrow afternoon it will be worse. i think it will be nice between 105 and 110 with the heat index. prepare for that. here is this complex of showers and thunderstorms moving in our direction. we had one move through this morning. you can see how quickly this is racing along. it's moving 60 to 70 miles per hour. that bow is not only intensifying but picking up in speed as well and that is indicative of strong winds as well. western maryland now and i expect the next two to three hours it will be moving through the area here. tomorrow, humid, hot and we have at least a chance for showers and thunderstorms late in the day. there could be a lingering shower tomorrow morning but not for everybody. noon it will be 93 degrees.
it will feel like 100. 96 at 4:00 with scattered showers and thunderstorms. it will feel like about 105. farther south it will feel like 110 or more in places. the heat advisory has been posted from 11:00 tomorrow until 8:00 tomorrow night for everybody east of the mountains and all up and down i-95. temperature tomorrow, high of 97. the heat index 105 to 110. tomorrow is the last day of extreme heat then we get less humid for friday. the weekend looks gorgeous. high temperatures may stay in the 80s for a change and it won't be so humid. we will keep an eye on the thunderstorms. i am anticipating a weather watch within the hour. >> keep us updated. aretha franklin is canceling two new york concerts after she fell and hurt herself. she broke ribs and has stomach pain after falling sunday. doctors advice her to undergo tests. she is trying to reschedule the
